Built in 1912, the Sheldon-Graves House near Hancock Park is significant as an excellent example of Craftsman style architecture. The home is a contributor to the Wilton Place National Register Historic District established in 1979. Notable architect Henry J. Knauer (1877-1946) designed this home as well as three others in the district. The second owner, Bryon L. Graves, was involved with the Ford Motor Company and was a founder of Western Air Express, one of the first air-plane delivery services in the world.
